Anane is an athletic and talented 2023 2-way prospect that works hard and made several adjustments throughout the week at pirate city. In the OF, Anane is on time with his prep step, he's aggressive to the ball, and takes good routes to the ball. He works behind the ball and creates momentum in his lower half when throwing to the bases. He needs to continue working on his first step quickness and increase overall arm strength. At the plate, Anane has a very similar swing from both sides of the plate. On the right side of the plate, he starts in a crouched position, loads his hands back, and keeps his head down at contact. He needs to continue to create back hip rotation and stay balanced through contact. From the left side, he starts in a crouched stance, keeps the barrel on plane, and drives the ball to the pull side. He needs to continue to attack the inside part of the ball and create back hip rotation. On the bump, Anane gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and drive the back leg toward the plate. His fastball sits 69-70 mph, he's got tight spin on his breaking ball, and gets a nice tumble effect on his knuckleball. Anane will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
